Preheat your oven to 425 degrees, if you have a convection oven turn it on once the oven has preheated.
In a small bowl add italian style bread crumbs and paprika. In a second bowl mix together flour garlic powder, and paprika. In a third and final bowl add milk and distilled vinegar and allow to set for 5 minutes.
Salt and pepper chicken thighs. One thigh at a time, dredge into the seasoned flour mixture, shaking off any excess, followed by the milk mixture, and finally in the panko mixture. Press panko mixture on chicken with hands if needed.
Once fully coated in the panko mixture, place onto a cooling rack that has been placed on a parchment covered baking sheet, skin-side-up, and repeat with the rest of the thighs.
Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes or until juices run clear.
